    Hard work but lots of help available in all aspects

    Oxford so far, has definitely been intense. There is a large amount of work squeezed into the short 8 week terms, and you definitely need good organisational skills to make the most out of it. Having said that, if you ask for help, every tutor I have had has been very understanding and helpful. If needs be many of them will even move tutorials for you into the holidays. The welfare teams and counselling services have also been fantastic.
    So long as you aren’t ashamed to ask for help, Oxford can be the most amazing and rewarding experience.

    High quality of teaching and great social scene

    Oxford is obviously a very high pressure university. The highly personal tutorial system at this university allowed me to go very deep into the subjects that interest me. It also created a level of focus that forced me to push myself intellectually in a way that I never had before. I have also met so many interesting, unique, and likeminded people here, and learned as much from them as from the (great) tutorial system. Despite the difficulties of studying here, I wouldn’t trade it for anywhere else!

    I would recommend this university for someone who is truly passionate about their subject and is willing to dedicate a large chunk of their life studying it intensely. I would not recommend this university to anyone who is mentally unstable as I feel being here can do a lot of damage to your self confidence, mostly in an intellectual regard.

    Overall great experience

    Although every college has a different type of room, most of them are quite small and they require you to move out every vacation. Aside from the accomodation, which could be improved, everything else is almost perfect and they all add up to create an amazing university experience, from the dedicated and well prepared tutors to the hundreds of student societies. Would definitely recommend!

    Friends

    Made great friends! Have loved the environment that is very stimulating and intellectually challenging. It was also conducive to getting out of my comfort zone and growing massively as a person. The sports infrastructure is rather disappointing though.

    Academics & Social & Careers

    The teachers that I have met so far are great. Workload is quite stressful.
    Social life can be intense; the student body (especially at undergraduate level is not diverse)
    Careers services are average; uni environment is not very career-oriented

    Excellent experience

    The university is located in a historical city, which creates a peaceful study environment. Students can get really focused on their projects due to the good atmosphere.

    The staff are also friendly and helpful. Students can always get a response on time whenever there are problems. Also the diversity is great. There are lots of opportunities to communicate with people from different backgrounds.

    The most challenging life experience

    Oxford, as expected, was incredibly academically rigorous and a huge challenge, both intellectually and personally.

    The collegiate system offered a really friendly and welcoming aspect to university life and it’s certainly worthwhile applying to a college that you think you’ll suit. It really allows for a good mix of socialising and meeting new people when you’re not studying.

    Academically, as expected it’s really tough. They push you to your limit, you often doubt yourself through this, but it’s worth it in the long run. Oxford teaches you more than just academics– it’s about how to manage your time, planning and resilience throughout.

    The city is absolutely beautiful. It’s not the biggest but it’s very condensed and has all you need. It’s safe, there’s lots going on and it has beautiful architecture.

    Overall, I recommend Oxford if you are truly passionate about your subject and want to be at the top of your game. It’s by no means an easy ride, but it’ll pay off for the rest of your life.

    Freedom to explore

    The high tutor-student ratio gives you the freedom to follow whatever you want while benefiting from the support of experts. The city is also full of interesting things to do, so both my work and my free time have been perfectly spent. Being a member of a college, a faculty, and societies as well as the university as a whole also meant I was sure to find friends.

  • Advanced Diploma in History

    I was able to complete a part-time diploma at Oxford University in local history. The subject that I chose was based on the Old Poor Law up to 1834. The course was good and useful to my career as I was able to obtain promotion at work having completed an Open University degree and the Advanced Diploma. I enjoyed meeting other students on the course. It was quite difficult as it was a long way to travel and I didn’t really get the opportunity to make use of the college/university facilities.
